1940s wide sateen pants & bolero set!!!

Look at this amazing early 40s set that I found recently! A rare find indeed and it is in mint condition. This set has a bolero tie top and a pair of wide, high-waisted pants with gorgeous embroidery. Very similar to the 1940s sewing shown pattern below.

If you are interested, this item is for sale in my Esty store. Just click on any of the pics and it will link you there 🙂

Downton Abbey Series 3 Xmas Special costuming…

Well, if you are Downton Abbey fan, you will no doubt have watched the series 3 Xmas Special by now (as I have), and I won’t give away any spoilers re the storyline here. BUT, I will however share some of the delightful 1920s fashions. I think that Lady Edith sported the best garb in this ep, along with an amazing cocoon coat worn by Lady Grantham.

New items in the Etsy store for 2013!

Happy New Year everyone! Thought I’d share what has just gone into the Etsy store today with you and what will be coming up; 1940s Military Buddies sweetheart pin, 1950s silk men’s tie, 1960s sneakers, ladies coat and men’s tie and a 1930s velvet scarf. I recently sold a bunch of 60s gloves and ties to wardrobe for the US show ‘Vegas’. Keeping an eye out for those when I watch 😉

And coming up in the next I will be adding a 1920s men’s evening scarf, a sheer 1930s evening gown, an unworn 1940s sateen bolero shirt and wide pants set. Enjoy!
